Legislators are not Employment Agents (One Response)

Tom Keane’s op-ed piece, http://www.boston.com/news/politics/articles/2010/12/04/politicians_no_more_favors,

copy and paste to read, is spot on and I hope Rep. Brownsberger takes it to heart and introduces legislation that will institutionalize it’s message.

Key take away: “Exceptions create the appearance — if not the reality — that the rule of law doesn’t apply to all. They breed cynicism about government, a belief that it’s all about who you know and not what is right. Legislators aren’t headhunters or social workers. If they want to get people jobs or deliver other favors, they should go into another line of work.”
